Setup Slideshow

Recommended Posts

websee    0

well, i didnt know exactly into which forum to put this, but i wasnt satisfiyed with the ability to edit the Setup Billboard.

so i decided to do it better.

i wanted to have a picture slideshow instead of the windows text, which can be edited, but it remains text.

so i made a small script that can be launched from DetachedProgram and replaces the windows text messages with your custom picture slideshow.

this should adjust itself to any setup resolution. even to widescreen ones.

look config.js to adjust the tiomeout (how often the images should be changed.)

unfortunately you have to make an imagelist and put it into filelist.js

var images = new Array(
"image1.jpg",
"image2.jpg"

);

you can also add your own text that is displayed above the images (any HTML tag can be used there), otherwise leave it empty. then no text is displayed. (you dont have to make an empty text entry for each image)

last but not least edit slideshow.cmd to enter the prper path to the slideshow and start slideshow.cmd form DetachedProgram in winnt.sif.

did i miss something?

any comments?

plz some feedback

slideshow.zip

you can add any image that can be viewed by internet explorer.

jpg, gif (even animated), bmp, png, ....

or can be changed with slideshow just some parts of entire picture ?

you can edit your images in photoshop first and then add them to the slideshow.

i do not exactly understand what you mean.

i dont exactly understand what you mean, but if you want to preview the slideshow, then you can simply do this by executing slideshow.hta (simply doubleclick on it)

ok this should help

open up slideshow.cmd and replace %PATHTOSLIDESHOW% by the path where your slideshow folder will be located on the cdrom

eg if your slideshow resides in D:\slideshow\slideshow.hta your last line should look like:

start %CDROM%\slideshow\slideshow.hta

remember not to have any spaces in your folder names.

open up your winnt.sif and under [GuiUnattended] add the line

DetachedProgram="%systemdrive%\install\slideshow.cmd"

last but not least put slideshow.cmd into $OEM$\$1\install in your windows cd.

burn, enjoy

@ websee

Thanks!

DetachedProgram="%systemdrive%\install\slideshow.cmd"

It's like to launch WPI; the difference - WPI comes in first reboot after Windows installation.

no, actually you can't

but this is a good idea, ill make file extra for u where you can embed flash, but it'll take some time, due to i am unfamiliar with embedding flash in html
